The Chinese Room




The Chinese Room is an award-winning 2009 independent feature. It was shot on location in Washington, DC with an all-local cast and crew. It is a self-financed thriller inspired by the famous thought experiment by John Searle.

Synopsis:
John is a "real live John Doe," on the run when he finds the perfect job: quiet work, cash under the table, no questions asked. But in this office, the manager Bouchard enforces his list of freakish rules with charisma and cruelty, and forces John to betray his colleagues, filing reports on their lives. The more John learns to fear the office, the more he becomes a part of it. But - what is The Chinese Room?

Subject: Soooo much potential....
I kept watching, but the stupid video kept stopping. I tried in HTML5 and FLASH. If they could fix the issue I would love to finish the movie because the story line seemed interesting and the actors were decent.

Subject: Good video
I have no problem streaming this, but I'm downloading the MP4 file so I can watch later. Video and audio are both excellent. Acting is at least competent. I'm giving it a tentative 3 star tho I haven't watched all of it yet.

It had that circle with the arrow every 6 seconds and I refuse to watch any stream like that!
